Summer is almost upon us and there is no room for bland in any wardrobes. Rather than opting for basic whites and beige, why not throw in some optical defying chequerboards, voluminous stripes and broderie anglaise

Graphic prints

It’s hip to be square this season. Checkerboard prints have been walked straight from the runway and onto the streets.

White heat

If you need a break from all the noisy graphic prints, then you’re in luck. All white everything is this summer’s biggest trend. This blank canvas need not be boring. Opt for clean structured tops in duchess satin or romantic broderie anglaise.

Minimalistic

There is still room for those who prefer a minimalistic approach to dressing. Jil Sander and Celine are the queens of fashion wallflower minimalism. Quality fabrics in an innovative cut are the way to go.
